Mag 7.3 Earthquake off Nicobar Islands, near India

Looking at the USGS Earthquakes site I noticed they had a list of all recent mag 2.5+ quakes and there is a magnitude 7.3 one reported for Nicobar Islands at 04:21 GMT (3.5 hours after the 8.9 one). It was at a similar depth (10kms) to the Sumatran Quake, although no idea whether the Nicobar one is likely to generate the same impact.
